SOURCE: Bosch Dishwasher won't fill with water

Certainly *sounds* like the float is stuck in the over filled position
or possible a bad float switch, if the float is stuck in the up or full position, the d/w will not fill with water and the drain motor will often run all the time

you may have to turn off power at main box, and check wires at bottom of machine and any other junction box , from dishwasher to main power box. pull on wires to see if they will come apart.

SOURCE: I have a Bosch 18v

you have a bad battery (defective) take the unit back to where you bought it and hopefully they will understand and exchange it out for you. If the dealer won't help you can contat the Bosch company, they typically will do an exchange even if you dont' have the receipt, (a courtesy exchange). You may have to pay to ship the defective battery to them. If you can prove when your purchased the system you will have less difficulty convincing them to give you a new battery. good luck with this, my experience with Bosch has been that they are a customer friendly company and should be willing to help you,as I would hope your dealer would

Hi ramzemail,

Welcome to fixya!

It sounds like the wire connection where you insert the battery is loose. So, when you give the battery a shove in, the connection tightens, then the vibration from use loosens it again. You would have to take the hand grip piece apart until you can see the wiring and check the connections.
Here is a diagram to help you disassemble the unit:

Copy and paste this entire address into your browser and the diagram for CCS180K will open for you. Should your model be the CCS180B, use this address:

The battery area is the same for both but, in case you ever need parts, I'll give you both.

Good luck.

Hope this helps. Please place a vote when you accept this solution. Thanks,

Handie Andie

The problem is in the keypad control board and usually means it must be replaced to fix the problem, and the part alone is expensive.

Bosch cordless drill not working.

First The model is pretty new. you need to register your tool on line. this takes you from a one year warranty to a three year warranty. They will give you a pro-vantage number. with that said it sounds like a trigger switch. Yhe trigger switch is the brain of your tool. not only does it do your variable speed but it also controlls the brake and your fuel gauge. Because of the cost I highly recomend taking it to your closes Bosch service center.

My Bosch 18V planer 53518 just stopped working. Worked fine one day, picked it up the next day, nothing!! Batteries fine, checked belts, etc. I see no problem. Any suggestions?

Did you ever figure this out? Mine just did the same thing. Fresh battery. Pulled trigger. Started to run, then just stopped. Don't know if it's the switch, motor or something else.

I place my bosch bat on the charger knowing it is full dead and nothing happens. The bat is only a few months old and not used that often.

Bosch has has some problems with their batteries. Take that battery back to the supplier or warranty service center if it is still under warranty.

Nail Gun cost

A good-quality starter set, including both a compressor and a small nail gun, can be bought for around 200 US dollars (USD). More sophisticated models can reach 1000 USD or more. Optional features such as a hard-shell case, safety trigger, and depth adjustment can drive the price even higher. For one-time jobs, a nail gun can also be rented at hardware stores and home repair centers.
